With the new school year fast approaching in August, Klein ISD is set to share a comprehensive plan with parents about learning options.
Klein ISD will start virtually with their Klein Online program on August 19, the district said in an update to parents on their Roadmap to Reopening website.
The district added that students who selected face-to-face learning will start “no earlier than” September 9. They will also reassess reopening conditions for face-to-face students after August 24.
The district said students have the options of learning in-person or online and parents will have to update the child’s registration. The district says this year, parents are to decide which learning option the student will use by the extended date of July 31. The district is also seeking information regarding device and Wi-Fi access in homes.
The district said a collaborative group of district and campus leaders have worked on a Reopening Design Team since May to research and review all the national, state and local guidelines for a safe and successful reopening of schools.

List of measures in place:
- Flexible learning alternatives: Klein ISD announced that parents will be able to enroll their child into one of two methods of learning: Klein On-Campus and Klein Online. Parents will also have the ability to switch methods of instruction at the beginning of each grading period.
- Social distancing: Teachers and staff will be trained to promote social distancing between students.
- Class size limits: Teachers will be given a certain number of students per classroom, along with separated desks or marked-off desks to promote social distancing.
- Temperature screenings - Klein ISD students who chose Klein On-Campus will conduct COVID-19 health screenings at home before coming to campus.
- Masks: Klein ISD students will be required to wear masks or facial coverings in common areas, buses, and when social distancing is not feasible.
- PPE: Staff members will be provided PPE to safely work in areas involving students, such as the cafeteria.
- Sanitization: Klein ISD students and staff will practice strict health protocols such as hand washing, staying home when sick, and clean high-touch areas with district-provided disinfecting wipes. Students are also not permitted to use water fountains on campus; the district will provide water.
- Partitioning: dividers will be places between bathroom sinks, front offices and cafeteria tables.
Measures not in place:
Klein ISD will follow UIL guidelines for sports and activities and will postpone them until after September 7.
